diy Boxwood Wreath

I have always wanted a boxwood wreath for our front door. I have searched and searched and to buy what I wanted was $80+... not happening so I decided to make my own. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a 20" wreath with a 40% off coupon and 16 bunches of fake boxwood that were on sale for 50% off, 
making them $1.50 each. 

I laid them out to see how it would look 
(and how many I would need)

I cut the bunches into 4 pieces and slid the pieces in. 

I used twine to tied branches down that stuck out too much or to help them "fill" in spots. 

And the finished wreath!

The total for this came out to $28 and I love the way it looks. Classic, simple and understated. 


  1. Looks so good! I love boxwood!
